      These guys are trying to sell this Mystery Porsche for $13M on Ebay.

      P 911T The Fabled 235 3000 Series

      Looks like it's all a bunch of porsche photos from the innernet thingy to me.

      The seller went from selling razor blades to 13 million dollar Porsche prototypes. Gotta be legit.

      I think he's just a nut. The wording of the ad is all over the place. Also, I'm far from a Porsche expert, but why would someone rebuild an early one off Porsche 911 prototype to resemble a later model slantnose?
      I do not understand why some coupes make the grade and others do not. Everyone knows, for instance, that the Corrado was as tasty as an East End prize fighter with the looks of a Benetti super-yacht. The four-cylinder was good, but the VR6 was about as close as you could get to Ferraridom without buying a Ferrari. And what happened? You all went to the pub instead. -Jeremy Clarkson-

      I agree there appears to be some serious insanity going on here. It looks like an early 911 with a hacked fiberglass slant nose conversion. I wonder if any of the Porsche forums have picked up on it yet.

      That ad has been around for a while - I think I saw it a year or two ago - it still looked like garbage then. So, just seems like some guy trying to blow smoke.

      Seller is clearly off his meds. 2/3 of that description doesn't make sense, and there is nothing fabled about the 911T....prototype or not. $13 million?

      this is one of those scams, whoever gets caught by something as ridiculous as this, deserves to be caught.

      This brings back memories of a customer trying to trade in his 911 on a 1994 RX-7.

      Customer: It has a double three in the rear.
      Me: Huh?
      Customer: Ya it has the double three. (opens deck lid)
      Me: That's a 3.2 flat six.
      Customer: That ain't f-uck-ing FLAT!!! Thats 3 cylinders x 2 hence 3.2.
      Me: Wow let me introduce you to my General Manager I'm sure he'll want to see this.
      Customer: Thank you so much.
      Me: runs away

      Too late guys I already sent the seller a certified check for 15m and told him to send me the excess back.

      Its ok though because the entire transaction will be handled by ebay. They are even going to ship it to me!

      Cry once....
